Earl Sweatshirt has cancelled a brief run of festival shows he was scheduled to perform in Europe. Hours before he was scheduled to perform at Field Day in London, the festival announced that the rapper would not be able to perform. Earl was also set to perform at festivals in Dublin and Manchester, both of which have now been cancelled. In a statement a spokesperson for the rapper says that the cancellations follow a difficult mental health battle for Earl. “Earl is battling anxiety and depression which has been compounded by the grief from the recent passing of his father,” the statement reads. “He thought he would be ready to perform but simply is not yet able to. He would like to apologize to his fans and promises to be back as soon as he is able to.”
